Police ‘no help’ over shop thefts THE owner of an antiques store in Barnsley has said he is ‘sick to death of having no help’ from the police after reporting a variety of thefts. Daniel Parker, who owns Barnsley Antiques Centre on Doncaster Road, has blasted South Yorkshire Police, branding the force ‘useless’ when it comes to retail crime due to the number of cases he says are closed without evidence. Daniel, of Gawber, said he has had submitted CCTV showing people stealing items and knows the names of those who have shoplifted in his store, but said many cases are closed because of ‘lack of evidence’. “It’s an hour or more on 101, an hour giving a statement, and sometimes three or four hours trawling through CCTV to put it all on USB sticks for police, just for them not to do anything,” said Daniel. “Recently I spotted a young lass stealing, I confronted her with her boyfriend and gave her the chance to hand the items back that she had put in her pockets.

INBRIEF... Body of missing woman is found POLICE searching for missing woman have found a body in the Thurnscoe area. Formal identification of the body has taken place and police have confirmed that it is 48-year-old Lorraine Fowlds, who had been reported missing. Lorraine’s family have been notified and are being supported by specialist officers. A police spokesman said: “The death is not being treated as suspicious, however officers remain in the area carrying out enquiries. “We would like to thank the members of the local community who have assisted in the search for Lorraine.”

DISAPPOINTED: Barnsley Antiques Centre owner Daniel Parker. Picture: Kurt Fairhurst. PD088537 “She denied stealing and the couple both then made a run for it and a struggle happened at the top of the shop steps. “A customer and staff phoned 999, police arrived maybe half an hour later, and asked them both if they had stolen anything. Both said no, she then gave one item back which she had stolen, so police said ‘now you’ve got it back we will have to let her go’, and it turns out she is an extremely well-known

prolific shoplifter. I don’t understand why police let them go and don’t charge them for every offence.” Daniel also said the ‘lack of help’ from the police has led him to ‘almost stop’ reporting crimes, because he feels nothing will be accomplished. “In the last six months I’ve probably only reported three crimes. I’d say the crime level is the same,” said Daniel. “It makes me want to close the shop and never

open again, it’s just too stressful and no deterrent for the thieves. They all know that police don’t care. “Most shops in Barnsley are getting items stolen daily. The bigger shops aren’t allowed to publicise it and they aren’t allowed to release CCTV to warn other shops. “I know some shops that get hundreds of pounds worth of goods stolen most days, and it’s usually by the same offenders,

even on the odd occasion they give them a town banning order, they still come in stealing. It’s shocking.” Daniel said he has raised concerns with the police about the problems he has been facing regarding crime at his shop, and says he has made numerous complaints. South Yorkshire Police declined to comment. Are you a business owner? What’s your experience? Write to editorial@ barnsleyindependent.co.uk.

Shop fire believed to be arson A FIRE in a Lundwood shop in the early hours of Wednesday morning is thought to have been an act of arson, according to South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue. The fire, on Pontefract Road, led to Cudworth firefighters being called out at 1.15am. They used a hose reel to extinguish the fire, started in a bin inside the premises, and left at 1.45am.

United approach to tackling Dearne crime COUNCILLORS, business owners and residents in the Dearne have banded together in a bid to help stop rising crime. A public meeting took place in Bolton-upon-Dearne, when more than 130 people attend to discuss problems in the area, including knife crime, attacks with weapons, van and property break-ins, youth gangs, local drug culture and antisocial families. The meeting was attended by Dearne South councillors Neil Danforth and May Noble. One Bolton-upon Dearne resident, who did not wish to be named, expressed his concern over people ‘taking matters into their hands’ when dealing with crime, as he said many residents are claiming the police are not doing enough. “The meeting was supposed to have representatives from South Yorkshire Police, but we couldn’t get anyone as the local officers weren’t working. “Incidents of crime are happening more and more often. It just feels like things aren’t being followed up by the police. “It’s all over the Dearne Valley, particularly in Thurnscoe, Bolton and Goldthorpe.” Recent incidents of crime highlighted at the meeting included knife crime, gangs throwing fire-

works and antisocial crimes. Coun Danforth said he attended the meeting to help answer questions from members of the public, but said most were directed towards the police, and as no officers were there, it was hard to answer them. He said: “Crimes have grown in Bolton over the last 18 months. People are fed up and they are starting to believe it is pointless going to the police. There’s been talk of people putting balaclavas on and taking situations into their own hands.” Issues have been put to Wentworth and Dearne MP John Healey, who met a representative from South Yorkshire Police on Friday. He said: “The reports I’m getting about crime in the Dearne are shocking. There’s been a rapid increase in incidents and in seriousness, and the police need to step up. “Goldthorpe and Bolton have a lot of people who care deeply about their villages and each other. They deserve to be heard and to get a response. “These villages away from the big town centres often feel overlooked and it is no wonder they are angry that South Yorkshire Police failed to send anyone to a meeting of 130 residents.

“No one in the Dearne should have to live in fear. People have the right to go to work and to the shops without being attacked and for their children to be able to play outside safely. “Our PCSOs have been cut with nothing put in place. I want more police, more patrols and more officers able to deal with serious crime based in Goldthorpe. Criminals feel like they can get away with anything. But they can’t and they won’t. This has got to stop.” A spokeswoman from South Yorkshire Police said although officers could not attend the meeting on Monday, they are still ‘extremely proactive in the community’. “Our officers regularly carry out high-visibility patrols and targeted stop searches which have a big impact. “We regularly execute warrants targeting organised and drug-related criminality, this includes concentrated days of action with colleagues from across Barnsley. “Last month, we carried out warrants in Goldthorpe and Bolton-upon-Dearne which saw a number of weapons and drugs seized and individuals charged. “When it comes to burglaries, we are in the process of launching Operation Shield in the Dearne.”

Damaged headstone sparks search RELATIVES of a married couple who died in the early 20th century are being sought after the headstone which marks their shared grave was badly damaged after falling. The headstone at Brampton Christ Church marks the grave of James Pepper, who died in 1913, and wife Lucy Elizabeth, who died in 1932. Volunteers who maintain the churchyard found the headstone one morning broken into several pieces – but how it fell remains a mystery. They are now seeking relatives of the Peppers, who are responsible for

maintaining the grave. Although the parochial church council can’t provide financial help towards the restoration, they say a number of local stonemasons will be able to either restore or replace the headstone. If no one can be found, the headstone will be turned over as per instructions from the Chancellor of the Diocese, to protect the inscription from weather damage.

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, January 14, 2020 –

Why the timely diagnosis of dementia is key BARNSLEY has seen among the smallest increases in the number of people diagnosed with dementia over the last five years while other parts of the UK have seen figures more than double, analysis of NHS data shows. Across the country, diagnosis of dementia has increased by 40 per cent from 2014 to 2019, but in Barnsley that increase was just 14 per cent, making it the 12th lowest of the 185 NHS Trust areas for which data was provided via the Shared Data Unit. Sheffield was the only trust in South Yorkshire with a lower figure at 13 per cent. In Rotherham it was 30 per cent and Doncaster 32 per cent. A drive to increase diagnosis rates and an ageing population were behind the increases seen across the country, experts said, and in Barnsley, a lot of work has been done in recent years to ensure those with dementia receive a ‘timely diagnosis’ in order to make sure they receive the best possible care and support. Jayne Sivakumar, chief nurse for Barnsley CCG, said: “Getting a timely diagnosis for someone living with the symptoms of dementia is really important. “We know that around seven in ten people over the age of 65 who may have dementia have had a formal diagnosis. That’s around 2,100 people in Barnsley. “I’ve seen diagnosis rates improve considerably over the past six or seven years. The diagnosis rates now in Barnsley are above the national average and the national target set for us by the NHS, which is good as it means

more people can get timely support. “Over the coming year we will be doing more work to diagnose people who may have dementia and provide ongoing support as a result of a brain injury or alcohol related causes. “It’s important to remember that dementia is not a natural part of growing older and so if things like memory loss start to affect your daily life or it’s worrying you or someone you know, you should seek help from your GP. All GP practices have a dementia champion on their team. “We know that dementia is a very complex condition and the timelier someone gets a diagnosis, the better. There has been a fantastic amount of work to make Barnsley into a dementia friendly town, grow all sorts of groups, activities and advice services.” Care of those with dementia can be very costly and in recent years Barnsley Council has added a specific additional charge on its council tax ring-fenced towards the cost of adult social care. This is expected to continue again this year. Anyone with savings or income above £23,250 is expected to pay for their own care fees. People with savings below that figure are entitled to help with the cost of care from the council. This money goes towards paying for a carer to visit, or for a care home or nursing home. The current standard amount the NHS will pay towards nursing care is £165.56 per week, according to the Alzheimer’s Society. n Figures provided by the Shared Data Unit.

LEADING LIGHTS: The Baumber family, Stephen, wife Jo and their children Mia and Charlie.

Festive light show raises record sum PENISTONE’S caring Baumber family really did trip the light fantastic over Christmas. The annual illuminations at their house raked in a record-breaking amount to donate to a local charity – a total of £850. “This was our best year yet,” said a delighted Stephen Baumber. “We smashed all previous amounts raised.” The money will go to the Happy Cafe in Penistone, which works to boost well-being among residents. As well as raising a record amount with the 14th lights display at their home in Long Furlong, the Baumbers also attracted more

visitors than ever before. “Our lights are now off and I have started the long and painful job of taking them all down and putting them away for another year,” said Stephen. “We are very proud to say we have raised £790 plus £60 on the (opening) night which was given directly to the Happy Cafe as they were serving cakes and warm drinks. This brings our total to £850. “We say a massive thank you to our fantastic community and hope this goes some way towards making a huge difference to lots of other people.”

Ash teaches flicks of the trade Chance to get creative A WORLD record breaking freestyle footballer is bringing his flicks and tricks to Barnsley Academy after his successful taster sessions. Ash Randall, who holds 20 world records in freestyle football, is teaching four freestyling sessions throughout January, after a successful turn-out at his taster sessions last year. A freestyle footballer performs technical tricks with the football including neck catches and toe bounces as a way of controlling the ball. Over the course of the four sessions, children aged eight to 12 will be able to perform skilled tricks and improve technique. “I started the freestyle football sessions as

there doesn’t seem to be anything quite like it out there,” explained Ash. “The interest in freestyle football is growing rapidly around the world and its online presence is constantly increasing. “I thought I’d start up some sessions so I can personally pass on tips that I’ve picked up over the last 14 years freestyling to a new generation of budding footballers and freestylers. “We won’t be doing any shooting, passing or football matches, it is a fantastic opportunity for the kids to concentrate on their ball mastery techniques. “The skills can be difficult to learn, some take days, weeks, months and in some cases years to perfect a new skill, but this is

the kind of dedication you need to bring out the best in yourself. “It’s not necessarily about being better than anyone else, it’s about exploring creativity with a football and developing your own style that suits you and having fun with it. “It will make these young footballers step out of their comfort zone of just playing football, they will be able to open their mind and explore many creative avenues using a football and realise they can do so much more with it.” Ash’s next session takes place tomorrow from 5.30pm at Barnsley Academy. For more information or to book a place, visit the Freestyle Football Academy Facebook page.

CREATIVE writing classes free to people on benefits will begin on Friday. The ten-week course, run by WEA, takes place at Emmanuel Methodist Church Hall, Huddersfield Road. The aim of the course is to inspire and improve

confidence in students of all levels through creative writing. Students will also learn how to look at writing critically, and improve their listening and editing skills. Those not on benefits can take part for a fee of £76.

Happy Cafe spokesman Bruce Meed said: “We are extremely grateful to the Baumber family for all their efforts.” The cafe meets every Tuesday at Cafe Creme on Penistone High Street from 6pm to 7.30pm and at least once a month provides activities to further its aims of bringing happiness to the community. Projects for 2020 include ‘chat benches’, a mobile Happy Cafe to take the cafe on the road into remote villages and to events, the ‘Art of Conversation’ project for Penistone Arts Week and a Youth Happy Cafe.

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, January 14, 2020 –

A genuine Trail of triumph A NOTION that began in Barnsley in the mid-1980s has chalked up a historic milestone. Throughout 2019, the celebrated Trans Pennine Trail marked its 30th birthday. A packed events programme came into play across the 370-mile route. But there have also been more local celebrations – notably the Penistone TPT Conservation Volunteers being named Sustrans Group of the Year for Yorkshire. This tireless band is out in all weathers, all year round, keeping their section of the TPT in order. The group marked its own eighth birthday in the autumn with cakes and drinks as they worked along the trail. The occasion led secretary Kate Dobson to quip: “Eight years and it’s still not finished.” Events to mark the 30th anniversary have included walks, rides and activities hosted by TPT partners. So how did it all start? In 1986, Barnsley Council recognised the disused railways presented potential for major greenways, with the possibility of extending them into adjoining authorities. Following a feasibility study in 1987, an initial network was formed and the first phases of construction work began in 1989.

Today, the TPT passes through 27 separate local authority areas with the vision to ‘establish the Trans Pennine Trail as a nationally recognised, accessible recreational route for walks, cycling and horse riding’. Barnsley is still the location of the TPT national office and is in a unique location as the central point of the TPT, where users can travel to Southport, Hornsea, Leeds or Chesterfield. The route in Barnsley is also full multi-use, which means it can be used by walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The uniqueness of the trail in Barnsley is that it provides access to the north and south sections and can also be explored as a circular route through the heart of the South Yorkshire Forest. There are many interesting

places to see and visit while travelling along the TPT in Barnsley. The route in the west passes along ‘Windle Edge’, the highest point on the whole of the trail, through to the villages of Dunford Bridge and Thurlstone and on to Penistone. At Oxspring, there is a choice of several routes, one leading directly east with links to Wakefield and Leeds, and a southern route to the picturesque village of Wortley then to Sheffield through Wharncliffe Woods. Each route passes close to attractions such as Worsbrough Mill and Country Park, Elsecar Heritage Centre and Old Moor Wetland Centre. The work which began in 1989 led to a trail from York to Liverpool via Selby, Doncaster, Barnsley, Manchester, Warrington and

Widnes, with other northern and southern sections added later to create the full coast to coast route that officially opened in 2001. Today, the TPT meanders along old railway tracks, canal towpaths and riverside pathways, passing through urban and rural landscapes in Yorkshire, Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Merseyside. It includes some of the most historic towns and cities in northern England, heritage sites and the Peak District National Park. As well as the main coast to coast route (215 miles), there is an additional north-south section connecting Leeds and Chesterfield, and spurs to York and Kirkburton. Much of the trail is relatively flat and provides a great safe area for everyone, including families, and those less confident or less able to get out and enjoy the fresh air. Gillian Ivey, chairman of the TPT partnership, said: “The route is a great place to encourage an active lifestyle, helping to promote good health through gentle exercise in a safe environment. “In addition, in promoting sustainable travel, the trail is dedicated to improving air quality and reducing congestion by encouraging people to adopt green transport in their daily routines.”

Harry’s growing plan A COUNCILLOR is searching for funding after announcing his plans to create a community garden in Mapplewell. Coun Harry Spence has announced the launch of a Celebration Garden, which will be a stretch of plotted land for residents to weed and plant. The councillor is applying for funding at the next Darton East ward alliance meeting, where he hopes to get extra support for the project. Harry has also turned to local businesses for sponsorship and funding to get the community garden built. “The response to help with the funding has been very generous,” he said. “It’s nice to see local people coming together to fund a project that brings young and old together.” The garden will be

located adjacent to the North Gawber Memorial in the Mapplewell Co-op car park. It will be available for the local community to use. “The welcome plaque has already been made,” added Harry. “Mapplewell Co-op is 100 per cent behind this project, as are the local primary schools which have eco councils, who I will be meeting with to discuss planting and future commitments. “The height of the raised bed will be about two feet and will give easy access for wheelchair users. “All residents of the community are welcome to come along and offer advice, plant and weed the garden once it’s up and running.” A launch date has yet to be confirmed, but work on the project is due to start in the coming weeks.

Clampdown on towncentre crime continues A FOUR-DAY crime clampdown almost doubled the police presence in Barnsley town centre. Operation Barossa, the second instalment of an operation introduced late last year, saw police officers, mounted units and PCSOs work with Barnsley Council’s Safer Neighbourhoods Service to target a number of offences specific to the town centre. “This is an intelligence-led operation to tackle illicit supply and use of controlled drugs and associated anti-social behaviour, as well as violent crime and public disorder,” said Barnsley Central’s neighbourhood team on Facebook. The first wave of the operation was hailed as a success by Barnsley sergeant Steph Coverley and led to several arrests.

U3A seek new recruits BARNSLEY and District U3A is looking for people to join the group and help combat loneliness and isolation in the community. It has around 200 activity groups and also has sub-groups called MOTO (Members On Their Own) for different areas. These aim to provide companionship for members wishing to take part in activities but who would rather not do so alone. Barnsley U3A will have a stall at Hoyland Library next Friday, January 17 from 10am-noon. Alternatively, search Barnsley and District U3A on Facebook.

Businesses suffer through bridge work A SIX-MONTH road closure to allow a railway bridge to be replaced has come into effect – leading locals to blast Network Rail bosses for jeopardising businesses’ trade. It is understood the bridge, on Hough Lane, Wombwell, will be removed by workers at some point in the spring but it’s been deemed necessary to close the stretch from Dovecliffe Road to Foundry Gate. The prolonged period will allow utilities such as gas, electricity and water to be removed from the bridge ahead of it being demolished and reconstructed. The closure, which came into effect last Monday, will go on until June according to Network Rail, although Wombwell Railway Station’s car park remains open, albeit with some slight changes to allow for associated work machinery. Jan Bell, from The Bolthole Cafe on Dovecliffe Road, said trade has already been affected. “There’s a detour through Wombwell Woods but it’s a terrible road and many of our elderly customers simply refuse to drive there,” she added. “There’s been no consultation, all we’ve had is a letter. “Because the bridge has been closed we’ve effectively been

cut off from the Wombwell end of our trade. Hoyland customers are able to access the cafe but it’s chaos as they’ve put a huge diversion in place. “Six months just seems so excessive and we’re worried about our future.” A diversion – which some people claim has added up to an hour on to their rush hour journeys – is available via Wood Walk, Dearne Valley Parkway, Wath Road, Valley Way, Mayflower Way, Park Street and Church Street. An alternative route for pedestrians will be available via a new temporary footbridge, accessible from the station’s car park, and a shuttle service will be put on at times when the footbridge is closed. Pedestrians can still get across the bridge for now. Train services on the Sheffield to Leeds line will be largely unaffected, apart from when the bridge is physically removed later in the process, and buses will be put on for passengers during the weekend in which it’s lifted out. One Wood Walk resident, who did not wish to be named, added: “It’s been chaotic and to close a road which connects Wombwell to Hoyland for so long is crazy. “The scenes on Tuesday morning in particular were ridiculous

as many had to use Wombwell Woods which is treacherous at the best of times, narrow and the danger has been added to by the closure. “It’s added about ten miles per day to my journey, but it’s the businesses I feel sorry for as their trade has been halved. “I appreciate that the work has to be done, but it’s the timescale I can’t get my head around. Network Rail has a lot to answer for.” A spokesman from Network Rail said that the bridge – built in the Victorian era – had reached the end of its lifespan. They added: “We are working closely with Barnsley Council to keep disruption to a minimum. Hough Lane’s bridge was built in 1895 and the original bridge deck is still in place. “This now needs completely replacing and the new bridge will be stronger, as well as wider, which will allow the pavements to be wider, improving the bridge for pedestrians. “Bridges on our network can reach the point where major works are needed. “It’s known as the end of their ‘design life’, meaning that they have to be replaced to continue to provide a safe and reliable railway for passengers.”

Defibrillators are on the way MORE than 20 defibrillators are set to be installed across the north-east area of Barnsley after funding was secured to install the life-saving equipment. The Barnsley Long Term Exercise Heart Support Group (Barnsley Healthy Hearts) donated £18,500 to the Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) to install defibrillators in areas which have the greatest need. Barnsley North East Area Council also added to the funds, to ensure that 22 public-access defibrillators will be available in the event of an emergency. On Tuesday, the first defibrillator was installed outside Lifestyle Express on High Street, Royston.

Andrew Coole, of A Coole Electrical Ltd, installed it free of charge. A further two will be installed in Royston at Royston Police Station on Station Road and the pavilion at Royston Park. Joanne Watson, community defibrillation co-ordinator at YAS said: “One of our current priorities is increasing the number of community-access defibrillators as defibrillation, together with CPR, are essential steps in the chain of survival. We are delighted with this generous investment which will undoubtedly save lives.” Steve Phukett, from Barnsley Healthy Hearts, said: “I would like to voice my appreciation to all the individuals and their respective groups involved.”

Duo Andy and Mark show they are club class... A BROTHER-IN-LAW duo who sing together at working men’s clubs up and down the country and have performed more than 500 gigs in the past decade are becoming even more popular. Andy Goodwin and Mark Jeffries, of Bolton-upon-Dearne and Kimberworth respectively, have been singing together as the band Top Marks for eight years. The pair started off as separate singers and met when Andy, 34, was getting engaged to Mark’s sister. “I went to scope him out when he was DJ-ing a set,” said Mark, 34. “I think we ended up actually singing together that night too. “At that time, I was singing in a duo called Top Marks and the guy I was singing with left. “He had been doing it for a long time and just wanted to do different things. “One weekend I had no one to sing with. “The only person I knew that was a singer and a similar age

to myself was Andy, who was engaged to my sister. “He had told me he sang in bands before so I rang him up and said that I needed help to fill in these gigs and he said ‘yeah, I’d love to’.” The first gig the pair played together was a pretty interesting one for both of them, as Andy had to step into another man’s shoes – literally. “I had to wear the same clothes,” said Andy. “The agent was sort of fussy about the type of clothes you had to wear, patent leather shoes and all that. “To find them in my size at such short notice was impossible so I had to squeeze into the other guy’s old ones and do the show.” Andy joined Top Marks – named because the previous duo was made up of two blokes called Mark – and has been singing with his brother-in-law ever since. The pair say the timing was right for Andy to join, as he had not long left a job as a DJ.

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, January 14, 2020 –

CLUBLAND WILL NEVER DIE: Top Marks duo Andy Goodwin and Mark Jeffries.

“My previous job was DJ-ing on Fridays and Saturdays.” said Andy. “When Mark asked me to join, I wanted to do it and I had done a few gigs here and there as a solo singer but never took the plunge or took an agent or anything. “So I thought it was an ideal opportunity and here was someone who was ready to hold my hand and pull me into the industry really.” Top Marks sing music from the 60s up to the present day. But both Mark and Andy say their favourite era of music is the 80s. “Stuff from the 80s is my favourite type of music to perform. We have launched an exclusively 80s show this year, Born in the 80s,” said Andy. “We thought we would call it that as all the songs we do were born in the 80s. People know what we’re about then.” Mark added: “Yeah, 80s music is making a big comeback at the moment so it’s really popular.”

Win tickets to see legendary rock duo DON AIREY, keyboard player with Deep Purple, and Brian Downey, former drummer with Thin Lizzy, are pleased to announce a UK Tour with support from Rebecca Downes. It is hard to find a name amongst all those that over the last 30 years have left their mark in the history of rock that has not utilised Don’s keyboard skills at some point. Amongst them are Ozzy Osbourne, Rainbow, Whitesnake, Judas Priest, Gary Moore, Brian May, Jethro Tull, Black Sabbath and, obviously, Deep Purple, the band of which Don Airey has been a full-time member for fifteen years. Meanwhile, Brian Downey needs no introduction.

Hailing originally from Dublin, Brian enjoyed his first taste of success in Ireland with the top 20 hit ‘Morning Dew’, before forming Orphanage with Phil Lynott. The two went on to form the legendary Thin Lizzy with Eric Bell, and Brian remained a constant member until the band split in 1983. Having worked on Phil Lynott’s solo albums and the subsequent Grand Slam project, Brian moved back to Dublin around the time of Phil’s death in January 1986. Brian remained in constant demand as a touring and session drummer and regularly played live shows and recorded with renowned guitarist Gary Moore.

Brian is often cited as being an influence by many of the world’s top drummers and feels invigorated to be playing the songs he co-wrote in Thin Lizzy with his new band Alive and Dangerous. Don Airey and Brian Downey will be performing at the Sheffield Foundry on February 26 and we’re giving one lucky reader the chance to win a pair of tickets to the event. To win, just answer this question: How old is Don Airey? Send your answer with your name and number to competitions@wearebarnsley.com or post your answer to WAB Don Airey, 47 Church Street, Barnsley, S70 2AS. The closing date is this Friday, January 17.

WAB pictures of the week...

EACH week we ask you to share your favourite photos that you have taken during the week. Here’s a round-up of what we received...

Boss hopes new mentality will lead Reds to survival GERHARD STRUBER believes Barnsley are showing a ‘completely different mentality’ to when he arrived at the club in November. He was speaking after the 2-1 home success over Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town. Alex Mowatt and Conor Chaplin put the Reds 2-0 up by the 65th minute on Saturday, then the hosts held on after their lead was halved by Lewis O’Brien’s 66th-minute goal. Barnsley are now third-bottom of the Championship, one point from safety and two places and four points behind Huddersfield. Head coach Struber said: “I am happy, and very proud of my team. “We played very well against a big opponent. Huddersfield is a big name and they have a big budget but my team, especially in the first half, created a very good game. We made the next step in my style on the ball and we had so much control. “That is very important to stay in the league. I saw so many things that we work on in training every day.” Captain Mowatt latched onto Jacob Brown’s low cross to give the Reds the lead inside the first 15 minutes, despite Huddersfield dominating the early stages at Oakwell. Brown later turned provider for Chaplin to score his 10th goal of season from close range, but O’Brien instantly grabbed one back for the visitors with a superb half-volley into the top corner. Fraizer Campbell and Steve Mounie had chances to rescue a point for Danny Cowley’s side, but neither could hit the target. Struber added: “We need to learn from the second half, because we lost a bit of control and the opponent had chances with long balls, which are very hard to defend.

“In the end, I am very happy with the performance and the mentality to win which is the biggest change that we have made in the last two months. “I see a completely different mentality when I speak with the boys and when I look in their eyes. “When Huddersfield scored, we kept cool and had our mind always on the task, not thinking about a big fantasy. There was a lot of teamwork.” Huddersfield could have been ten points ahead of the Reds with a win, and Struber said: “It is the reality that, when we win, other clubs drop down. But my focus is only on my team and that we always climb higher every week. “In the end, I have a big conviction that we will stay in the league when we have this conviction, this style and this character.” Barnsley are unbeaten in five at home and Struber is pleased that they are rewarding the fans’ support. He said: “We have a big support from our fans and I happy that we can show this performance to them and get three points which is so important. When our fans go home they say ‘Barnsley is a fighting team with hard workers’. This is what we do every game.” Mowatt said: “It was a massive win for us. We were much the better team in the first half and dominated, then the second half was more scrappy, but we saw it out and got the win. “We were clinical. We didn’t have many chances, but we put them away. They put some balls into the box and I was scared right at the end, but it was nice to win.” “I have scored three goals against Huddersfield now in my career so I like playing against them.” Barnsley are next in action at Bristol City on Saturday.

TO ALL OUR ADVERTISERS

Our standard terms and conditions of Advertising and Payment are set out below and are applicable to all advertising booked in any of the Company’s newspapers, other publications and internet sites or with regard to any other business transacted. General In these terms and conditions (i) the ‘Company’ means The Barnsley Chronicle Limited of 47 Church Street, Barnsley, S70 2AS; and (ii) the ‘Advertiser’ means any person or company placing with the Company an order for the publication of an advertisement in any of the Company’s newspapers, other publications or internet sites, or any person or company placing with the Company an order for the distribution or insertion of leaflets or other publications or materials with any of the Company’s newspapers or other publications. Acceptance of Conditions In placing an order for the publication of an advertisement, the Advertiser accepts these terms and conditions. No term or condition that conflicts with them is binding on the Company or the Advertiser unless it is in writing and signed by or on behalf of both parties by an authorised signatory. These terms and conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales. If any provision in these terms and conditions is held to be invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part the remainder of them shall continue to apply. The Company reserves the right at any time to change in whole or in part these terms and conditions. CONDITIONS OF ACCEPTANCE OF ADVERTISEMENTS 1 Advertiser’s Warranty and Indemnity (i) The Advertiser warrants: (a) that the advertisement is legal, decent, honest and truthful and that it complies with the British Codes of Advertising and Sales Promotion, with any relevant codes of practice and with all requirements of current legislation; (b) that nothing in the advertisement is defamatory or constitutes a malicious falsehood; (c) that the publication of the advertisement will not infringe copyright or any other rights vested in a third party; and (d) that the Advertiser has secured all necessary authorities and consents in respect of the use in the advertisement of any pictorial representations or other representations of (or purporting to be of) living persons and of references to any words attributed to living persons. (ii) The Advertiser will indemnify the Company in respect of all costs, damages or other charges arising as a result of the publication of their advertisement or incurred in connection with any actions or claims brought against the Company arising from a breach by the Advertiser of the warranties in this paragraph 1 or otherwise from the publication of the advertisement. 2 Refusing or Amending Advertisements (i) The Company reserves the right to refuse to publish any advertisement whether or not the advertisement has been accepted or previously published. (ii) The Company may require any alteration it considers necessary or desirable in an advertisement as a prior condition of its publication, whether or not such advertisement has been accepted or previously published. (iii) The Company will permit only standard abbreviations and no hyperlinks or metatags may be included in any advertisements save with the prior consent of the Company. 3 Placement of Adverts (i) Whilst the Company will endeavour to comply with reasonable requests from Advertisers, the Company does not guarantee the publication of any advertisement or its publication on any particular date or in any particular position. (ii) The Company has at its absolute discretion the right to decide the classification, if relevant, for any advertisement. 4 Cancellation (i) The Company may cancel the Advertiser’s order at any time and shall give notice of the cancellation before the next due date of publication of the advertisement if practicable. (ii) In no event can orders be cancelled once the Company has commenced to carry out the order in accordance with the first publication date requested by the Advertiser. In other cases notice of cancellation must be received by the Company prior to the relevant current deadline. (iii) All cancellations must be notified in writing by post or fax. E-mail notice of cancellation is not acceptable. 5 Copyright (i) Copyright of all artwork, copy or other material created, reworked or contributed to by the Company shall vest in the Company. (ii) The Advertiser authorises the Company to record, reproduce, publish, distribute and broadcast (or to permit the same) all advertisements (including but not limited to text, artwork and photographs) and to include and make them available in any information service, electronic or otherwise. 6 Advertiser’s Property All artwork, photographs, leaflets, film or other property delivered by the Advertiser to the Company is held by the Company at the Advertiser’s risk and the Advertiser should insure all such property against loss or damage from whatsoever cause. The Company reserves the right to destroy without notice all such material after the date of its last use in connection with the publication of an advertisement, unless the Advertiser has given written instructions to the contrary. 7 Box Numbers (i) The Company will endeavour to forward all replies to a box number, to the Advertiser, as soon as possible after receipt, but the Company accepts no liability in respect of any loss or damage alleged to have arisen through delay in forwarding or omitting to forward such replies, howsoever caused. Box addresses must not be used for sending goods or materials of any value. The Advertiser authorises the Company to examine material passing through boxes and hereby authorises the Company to return to its originator or destroy any communication, which, in the opinion of the Company, should not be delivered to the Advertiser. (ii) Advertisements from dealers are not accepted under a box number, nor may a box number be used for the distribution of trade canvassing material. 8 Disclosing Information (i) All advertisements must be accompanied by the Advertiser’s full name and address and the Company may require evidence of authenticity of any advertisement. All trade advertisements must contain a trading name. (ii) The Company reserves the right to refuse an advertisement containing only a mobile telephone number unless the Advertiser discloses to them a BT land line number (or similar). (iii) The Company reserves the right to disclose the name and address of Advertisers if required by law or any regulatory or government authority or to other third parties where the Company, in its sole discretion, deems it reasonable. 9 Limitation of Company’s Liability (i) The Advertiser shall check the advertisement and notify the Company immediately in writing of any errors. The Company assumes no responsibility and shall not be liable for the repetition of errors in a series of advertisements unless it has received reasonable

written notice from the Advertiser. (ii) In the event of any error, misprint or omission in the printing of an advertisement or part of an advertisement (however caused) the Company will either re-insert the advertisement or relevant part thereof, or make a reasonable refund or adjustment to the cost. No re-insertion, refund or adjustment will be made where the error, misprint or omission does not materially detract from the advertisement. (iii) In no circumstances shall the Company’s total liability (including consequential liability) in respect of any error, misprint or omission exceed either the amount of a full refund of any price paid to the Company for the advertisement in connection with which liability arose, or the cost of a further or corrective advertisement of a type and standard reasonably comparable to that in connection with which liability arose.

Without prejudice to the foregoing, these conditions of acceptance specifically extend to any personal guarantee given by the directors of or any other person on behalf of a recognised agency in respect of any unsatisfied liabilities of the agency in the event of the agency’s liquidation or insolvency. Such guarantee is part of these conditions of acceptance. 13 Leaflets For the purpose of these terms and conditions, any leaflet or other publication or material distributed with any of the Company’s newspapers or magazines is deemed to be an ‘advertisement’, and references to the publication of such advertisements is deemed to be the distribution or insertion of such leaflet or other publication or material.

(ii) It is the responsibility of the Advertiser to bring to the Company’s attention at the time of booking any discount, allowance or exemption from Value Added Tax to which entitlement is claimed. (iii) All gross advertising rates (except classified lineage and semi display) are subject to the Advertising Standards Board of Finance levy from time to time (currently 0.1%) payable by the Advertiser to help finance the self-regulatory system. (iv) All rates and prices quoted by the Company are exclusive of Value Added Tax. 2 Advertising Agencies (i) Commission will only be granted to agencies formally recognised by the Newspaper Society or the Company at the time of placing the order. The rate of commission payable will be determined by the Company and may be carried or withdrawn at the Company’s discretion at any time, subject to giving the advertising agency seven days written notice thereof. (ii) All advertising agencies claiming commission must quote order numbers for every booking made. 3 Time of Payment (i) Unless credit terms have been agreed, pre-payment for any advertisement must be made in full no later than the relevant deadline. (ii) In the event that credit terms are approved, payment shall be made for each advertisement no later than thirty days from the date of the invoice for such advertisement. Should the Advertiser be in breach of these terms, or of any contract with the Company, then the full amount in respect of all advertising published and all other amounts accruing from the Advertiser shall become due and payable. (iii) The Company reserves the right to withdraw credit facilities from any Advertiser at the Company’s discretion. (iv) Payments by post must be by cheque or postal order made payable to the Company and crossed. All payments must be accompanied by the relevant invoice, statement or remittance advice issued by the Company. (v) Any query in respect of an invoice must be brought to the attention of the Company within seven days of its issue. The existence of a query on any individual item on an account shall not affect the due date of payment of any balance of such account. 4 Late Payments (i) The Company shall be entitled to charge interest on all sums due at a rate of 5% above the base rate for the time being of Barclays Bank plc until payment is received, after as well as before any judgment is obtained, together with compensation for late payment under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 and regulations made thereunder. (ii) The Company shall be entitled to add to any sums due any reasonable costs and expenses (including administrative costs) incurred by the Company in obtaining payment thereof on an indemnity basis. (iii) The Company shall be entitled to charge the Advertiser £15.00 in respect of any cheque tendered which is not met upon presentation (and to vary this charge at any time without notice).
